On the island of Santorini, in Cyclades, Greece, at Messaria village, only 3 km from Fira town and 2 km from Monolithos beach, stands ARCHONTIKO ARGYROU, Guest House and Private Museum. In 1888 George Argyros, landowner and wine-merchant, builds on the top of a traditional house this neoclassic mansion and decorates it with wall paintings, furniture and ornaments. In 1956 a big earthquake destroys part of the building and leaves it uninhabitable for thirty five years.

Lots of appreciation to Travel to Santorini for the text and the photos.
